Salma Hayek's New Mexican Drama 'Monarca' Debuts to Rave Reviews


When word first broke that Salma Hayek was producing a Mexican-based drama for Netflix, people were really excited. And that excitement only grew when the first details for Monarca were released: The show follows the drama of the Carranza family, which is helmed by a ridiculously wealthy tequila tycoon. Being that rich and powerful obviously comes with its own set of traps and battles, and Monarca looks to create more of that drama in Season 2.

While there's no shortage of dramas about Narcos families, as it turns out, even if you're producing a perfectly legal product like tequila, there's plenty to worry about from rival business owners, criminals, corrupt officials, and other elite, money-grubbing billionaires who'd like nothing more than to assume someone else's wealth for their own.
